    Trying Everything

     How exercises really helps your temperament, and adds balance to your life! And what a difference it makes if you stop after a few months or even weeks. I have been aiming since December to get in fit.  Right now I am in experiment phase in which I am trying...

    Can Barely Manage Going Down All 45 Floors

    My Tread...

      I got my treadmill yesterday; so nothing's stopping me now. I'm eating healthy. I'm keeping my eye on the prize! I'm so so so ready for May; the fist summer ever i'll feel *sorta* comfortable in my own skin. Hopefully I'll look acceptable.

    Lost 30... 50 More To Go!

    Losing weight is so hard!  Working out always pushing me closer to my goal.  Ultimately, I would like to be a "healthy" thin and work toward a (female) six pack with nice, toned arms.  A lean athlethic body on a woman is very sexy, and I really would like...

    Working Out My Glutes!

    When I tell people that I work out to get fit, the first reaction I get is "Look at you! You don't have to work out!" which makes sense from their point of view; I'm petite, 5'2'', and weigh about 104lbs. I "look" like I'm in great shape, the problem with that is that these...

    Day by day I get closer to my goals.

    With every rep, I'm a little bit fitter and a little bit stronger. I've never been over weight or anything but I always want to challenge myself to be as fit as I can be and as strong as I can be

    Obesity to Athletic, and the Trip Back Again

    In my 20's I somehow let myself go.  It wasn't just a little bit it was dangerously so.  I had allowed myself to baloon to over 200 Lbs and reach a BMI that was calculated as just 4 points away from Morbid Obesity.  I became obese, and was so close to the deathly...
